RIM set to launch smartphones running OS 7 tomorrow

RIM has let the cat out of the bag that it will be launching new BlackBerry devices running the latest OS 7 via its Twitter handle. The tweet conveniently coincides with the leak of press shots of the Torch 2 9810 and the Touch/Volt 9860 on PocketNow. Of course, we had exclusively posted live pics and even hands-on of both these devices months ago. We would also be looking out for the launch schedule of the Bold Touch 9900, which was announced at BlackBerry World earlier this year. Hit the break for press shots of the Torch 2 and Touch/Volt.

BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, Touch 9860 promos leak [video]

Research In Motion isn’t just a leaky faucet ahead of BlackBerry World this year, it’s a waterfall. We scooped RIM’s 2011 BlackBerry lineup back in January and more recently, we gave you a hands-on look at the BlackBerry Bold Touch, BlackBerry Touch and BlackBerry Torch 2 smartphones, but the leaks continue. In recent days we’ve seen full specs, brief hands-on videos and more, and for the two or three remaining naysayers who still don’t believe RIM is about to announce its next-generation smartphone lineup at BlackBerry World next month, RIM’s promo videos are now starting to leak out. Companies typically don’t put these promotional spots together unless the have some devices to, you know, promote — so BlackBerry fans should sit tight for another couple of weeks and we’re certain they’ll have some sleek new smartphones to swoon over. Hit the break for RIM’s official BlackBerry Bold 9900 and BlackBerry 9860 promo videos. More →
